Sophia Al-Maria

Sophia Al-Maria is a Qatari-American artist, writer, and filmmaker. Though her work spans many disciplines including screenwriting, video art, collage and memoir -  these disparate practices are united by a preoccupation with the power of storytelling and myth. Her work has been shown in institutions around the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Venice Biennale and Tank Shanghai. Her TV show Little Birds was produced for Sky Atlantic in 2020 and a second edition of her book Sad Sack (Bookworks) was published in 2023.  Carmen is her fourth collaboration with Moved By The Motion at the Schauspielhaus.
